Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (DERBY-2667) Create more robust junit TestRunner for running derby tests
Date Tue, 22 May 2007 22:57:19 GMT
To add my 2 cents: I like using whichever tool suits my needs at a
particular point, so I wouldn't want this to be a mandatory thing, but
it would be nice to see the nightly reports that currently run the
textui.TestRunner be a bit more helpful, especially in the case of
hangs, or failures in tests that are run multiple times.
The recent trouble with upgradeTests/encryptionTests is a case in point.

Also, I know that on zOS Manjula's not been able to use a GUI tool,
but textui.TestRunner hung, so there's another example.
We could all write our own, of course, but it seems a little
uncoordinated and inefficient.

Knut Anders put a simple TestRunner out a while ago (see:
http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/db-derby-dev/200610.mbox/%3Cwjo8mz7joyx3.fsf@sun.com%3E),
maybe he wouldn't mind to attach it to this issue & grant licence to
apache and then we can use it if desired instead of the
textui.TestRunner for situations where a gui tool is not necessary,
available or usefull?
